“...one of the world’s most scenic float, fishing streams.” --Life Magazine
The upper Jacks Fork River is one of Missouri's wildest and most scenic streams. It's deep valley extends about 30 miles from the Prongs to Alley. In the spring this section provides floaters beautiful class 2 water. Due to lack of access, it is the most primitive of rivers in this region. From Alley Spring to Two Rivers is a beautiful class 1 river and is floatable year-round. Fishing on the Jacks Fork is excellent. The 25 miles of river from 17 Bridge to Hwy 106 Bridge at Alley Spring, is best. It has been designated as a trophy Smallmouth Bass area by the Missouri Conservation Department, with only one 18 inch bass allowed per fisherman, per day.
